Bashful, But Cute!
Walt Disney's animated classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) is based on the fairy tale of the same name by the Brothers Grimm. In the story, princess Snow White escapes being murdered by the Huntsman (who was hired by the wicked stepmother, the Queen) and winds up at cottage belonging to seven dwarfs, who work in a nearby mine. The dwarfs return home to find their cottage clean and Snow White sleeping across three of their beds. The princess awakens and is welcomed into their cute home. She soon begins a new life cooking and keeping house for the dwarfs. The cutest of the dwarfs is voiced by Scotty Mattraw as Bashful, named because he is the shyest of the dwarfs, and is often embarrassed by the presence of any attention directed at him.
